The Apprentice


Whose Young Grasshopper Are You? Who do you mentor?

What is an apprentice?



One who is learning

.

 

What does one do when they are learning?



Gain
knowledge.



What is knowledge?



Understanding gained through experience

.



How does one gain experience?



Through active participation.



What are you actively experiencing in to gain knowledge? What are you learning? Who is that you mentor?



EVERYONE should be SOMEONE’s young grasshopper. And every young grasshopper, in return, should be someone else’s mentor.

Hi Joni,

Very wise words!!!  I love to learn new things...  and I am willing to mentor anyone who wants to learn.  Active participation is key for me...  I don't want that little sponge up there to dry up and crack!!!

You are such a sweetheart and I've really missed you!!!
